Last week, we pondered if Examiner.com, which seems to be running ads for writers EVERYWHERE, is just another pay-per-click meat market. I issued a call for “Examiners” to contact me, and to share their experiences. Sadly, some Examiners are working very hard for very, very little money…and seem very happy to be doing so. You’ll see that not everybody below is disgruntled so we believe this represents a fair sampling of Examiners.
What does “ibid” mean? I’ve seen it referenced in footnotes in books.
As promised, this week I’m sharing the steps I take when somebody sends me a bad check. Sure, I understand that bookkeeping mistakes happen, but by the time my bank has notified me of a bad check, the person whose check bounced has usually already been notified by their bank. If they haven’t contacted me immediately to right their wrong, I have to assume their actions were malicious.
When I first heard an editor mention my article had a good hed/dek, my first reaction was to offer her a throat lozenge. My second reaction was, what the heck is a hed/deck?
